Critic Reviews for Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted
This is that rare thing: a franchise that grows more winning with each instalment.
Once Madagascar 3 starts focusing on being a kids' movie, it's really quite cute.
Fans of the original and its familial sequel will love this colorful, vibrant excursion through Europe.
For a frantic, action-packed 80-odd minutes, it seldom puts a foot, paw or cloven hoof wrong.
Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted may arrive with low expectations, but it's a pleasant surprise, sending its character barrelling across continents for a zippy, engaging 90-minute adventure.
Audience Reviews for Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted
This useless sequel has a very great beginning but all the rest simply doesn't work. It fails to engage, fails to be amusing, fails in every lousy attempt at humor, and after a while you are left with something that is so much more irritating than enjoyable.
Part three of the animated adventure takes the somewhat simple initial premise and turns it into an action adventure in the circus milieu. That doesn't make even the slightest sense and has lost any ties to the real world, especially considering the insane amount of stunts, gags and hyperbole used throughout the first act. It doesn't help that the villain belongs to the most irritating and annoying ones of recent kids films. Of course everything's beautifully animated and there is plenty to see and laugh about, especially during the neon-colored finale. Kids will enjoy this, adults might shake their head at the chaos.
Well that escalated quickly! "Madagascar 3: Europes Most Wanted" comes out of nowhere and surpasses the first two films by a mile. This time, picking up right where the previous leaves off, these animals end up crash landing on Europe and must work with a group of circus animals to win their way back to New York and come full circle. This is a very well thougt out film with many more laughs than the previous instalments. The voice casting is great once again and I received even more than what I wanted more of in the second film. Sure, there are some cliches sprinkled throughout, but what makes them so clever is that they are almost always acknowledged by the dialogue. "Madagascar 3: Europes Most Wanted" solitifies the reason for "Madagascar" existing in the first place! Great, great fun!
